My World

It's easy to get used to the sights around here, but I realize how different they are than back home. So here are some pictures to give you an idea.

A typical street

A neighborhood park

The local mosque

The sidewalks here are much more interesting.

Yep, just a medieval stone gate there

Bab Rouah and a main road leading into town

Heading towards the center of town


Arabic, French, and Tamazight

A normal street sign in Arabic and French
Another functional street sign, though not quite official.
It's the Arabic in the middle (زنقة آم الربيع).

Whether or not you choose to call it graffiti, there is always something interesting written on the wall.

"No parking." This one is painted ominously all over, and usually disregarded.
No littering. Or else... 
No urinating here. Thank you.
The national motto: God, Country, King.

Things look different in Salé. This is what much of the countryside is like as well.

The new tram system is very useful for getting from Agdal to
the Centre-Ville, the medina, and Salé. 


  1. Hi! I love your blog. I've applied to YES Abroad with Morocco as my fourth choice, but now I'm thinking of moving it to first. By any chance could I ask you some questions about Morocco? Thank you! :)

    1. Hello,
      I'd be happy to answer your questions. Alumni of the program are meant to be a main resource, and I'll try to help if I can.

  2. I couldn't find any alumni, and I'd rather not wait until the IPSE (if I'm accepted D: ), so I figured you'd be my next best option.
